The New Royal Baby’s Historical Significance

The New Royal Baby’s Historical Significance As norms around family life have shifted over the centuries, so have the royals.

While these general tales are well-known, Merlin ’ s initial appearances were only somewhat linked to Arthur. It took many decades of adaptations before Merlin became the wizard of Arthurian legend he is known as today. Merlin was created as a combination of several historical and legendary figures.

The Kingdom of Scotland ( Scottish Gaelic: Rìoghachd na h-Alba; Scots : Kinrick o Scotland ) was a sovereign state in northwest Europe traditionally said to have been founded in 843.

Founded in the fifth century, the town of Dumbarton, on the River Clyde, west of Glasgow in Scotland, was once the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Strathclyde.

Dumbarton Castle sits on the dramatic twin peaks of the 240ft high Dumbarton Rock – a volcanic plug which in-filled the crater of a volcano which was active 350 million years ago.

It guards the point where the River Leven joins the River Clyde.

According to Historic Environment Scotland: “Dumbarton Rock was a mighty stronghold in the Dark Ages.

“Waters swirl around the base of the volcanic rock, which rises almost vertical into the sky.

“From its twin peaks – White Tower Crag and the Beak – you can see for many miles.”

The fort, was according to legend, visited by King Arthur’s wizard Merlin in the 6th century.

Known as Alt Clut – Rock of the Clyde, it was later called by the Gaelic name Dun Breatann – Fortress of the Britons –  from where the name Dumbarton is derived.

Vikings – led by Ivar the Boneless and Olaf the White – later beseiged the fortress, eventually pillaging and destroying it.

The medieval castle was built by King of Scots Alexander II in 1220.

It was a cornerstone of medieval royal power and later served as a military base and prison.

An important royal refuge, it was the hiding place for the young Mary Queen of Scots, before she fled to France at the age of five.

BBC Scotland also has drama studios in the town.

Harry became the third person to hold the title the Earl of Dumbarton, and now his son is expected to be the fourth.

Before the Queen gave Harry the title, it had not been used in more than 260 years.

The earldom has strong military connections.

The first to be given it was George Douglas, a younger son of the first Marquess of Douglas, who was created Earl of Dumbarton in 1675.

A Scottish nobleman and soldier, George received the title from Charles II in recognition of his military service.

When James VII of Scots (James II of England) came to the throne in 1685, the earl was made military commander in Scotland, and it is thought that when the King was deposed, George accompanied him to his court in exile in France.

On George’s death at St German-en-Laye in France, the title passed to his son, also called George, who became the second Earl of Dumbarton.

The title became extinct when the second earl died in 1749, until it was handed to Harry.

On marriage, Meghan became the Countess of Dumbarton.

Dumbarton was a Royal Burgh between 1222 and 1975.
